Stanford Center for Memory Disorders

The Stanford Center for Memory Disorders is dedicated to the fight against age-related cognitive decline. There are many different causes of memory loss, and an accurate diagnosis is essential to getting the best treatment.

Our physicians lead an interdisciplinary team of health care professionals working together to provide accurate diagnoses and to guide treatment. Experts from the fields of neuropsychology, psychiatry, nursing, pharmacy, and genetic counseling collaborate closely with our behavioral neurologists, allowing them to provide medical care that is both cutting edge and compassionate.

Research expertise from bench to bedside

The same faculty members who care for patients also contribute to research on Alzheimer's disease and other neurodegenerative disorders.  Stanford has numerous basic science labs investigating the fundamental causes of Alzheimer's disease and creating novel treatments. Our faculty brings advanced neuroimaging technologies and lab-based studies of blood samples to human research subjects in clinical trials, in an effort to make early diagnosis possible.
